This will be my last post for 2016, and my next will be the first for 2017.
In the spirit of endings, this should be the time when I update my CV and take some time to honour the activities of the past year. However, since I am still painting furiously under deadline, I will have to defer that until the new year. Until then, I will just take the time tonight to take a look back at a few of the activities I took part in and will be adding to my CV.
I have quite a few things to be proud of this year: I exhibited a couple paintings in the I Love Inglewood Show at the Edge Gallery, as well as at Parksday and Creekfest in Fish Creek Park. I sold work at the Thickwood Hills Studio Trail in the Shell Lake area, facilitated a collaborative painting project at Confederation Park, taught a plein-air painting workshop in Fish Creek Park, got some great feedback from a critique at the Leighton Centre, donated several art books from my personal library to Wafaa Bilal’s 168:01, attended many art shows and screenings, and conducted numerous Art a la Carte parties.
So I will be thinking about this list over the weekend: what do I want to do more of in the coming year, what I would like to discontinue and what new things I might like to tackle?
For the first post of 2017, I will be posting my New Year’s resolutions for my art work. See you in the New Year!
